This was our first trip to Knysna and the Elephant Hide couldn't have been a better place to stay. Although it is technically only a B&B, if you want to eat at the Lodge in the evenings anything can be arranged and almost any food you want from town can be ordered up to the lodge. Having a 1 year old and friends with a 5 month old, this suited perfectly so we could put the babies to bed and enjoy the comfort of the lodge, have great food but not need a babysitter. There are staff around in the evenings so should you need a babysitter though that is also no problem. We also had a BBQ on our last night and they provided everything we'd need - the kitchen is open to be used and it felt just as convenient as being at home although far more relaxing! Louise and Ryan who run the lodge are incredibly friendly and prepared to sort and organise anything you might need. There is loads to do in and around Knysna and although it isn't tecnically a beach holiday there is a gorgeous beach 10 mins drive away. All in all - a great place!
